I am 28 years old and I delivered my 2nd child 6 months ago, but did not breastfeed. Recently, I have developed pain in my areola and nipple area in my right breast. It only hurts if pressure is put on it or if I move about quickly. There are no lumps that I can tell and the areola area looks slightly redder and perhaps a little more swollen than my left breast. I am currently taking Yaz birth control. I can't find much info on this. Is this something that I should get checked out?
